Hi.
This song was written by Denny G who kindly allowed me to cover it.
It has a sort of 1940's style that I like a lot.
Any comments much appreciated. Cheers.

RD - Country even 8
Bass - Midi from Zydeco3 style plus my Pedulla 5 string
Accordion - RT 1287 Tex Mex
Nothing else.

I’d Be A Fool - Denny G

I’d be a Fool to think that you were sor-ry
Be a Fool to hope you were still there
I’d be a Fool to think that you still loved me
Be a Fool to think that you still care.

Long a-go our hearts were still united
Happy times when we still loved each an-other
Memo-ries that make me feel so hap-py
How I wish you were still here by my side


I’d be a Fool to think that you were sor-ry
Be a Fool to hope you were still there
I’d be a Fool to think that you still loved me
Be a Fool to think that you still care.

Don’t you think that maybe you still love me
Don’t you wish I was still hanging round
The good times are not just the memories
Good times can come back we can love a-gain

I’d Be a Fool to think that you were sorry
Be a Fool to hope you were still there
I’d be a Fool to think that you still loved me
Be a Fool to think that you still care.
I’d Be a Fool to think that you still care.
I’m a Fool cause I think you still care.

Richard,

Good job on that. I like the sparse arrangement. The drums need to be louder during the verse... nice job on the bass...

Hi Richard,

could be some Bavarian folk song, too.
Very nice.

I'm fond of sparse arrangements that leave you
wanting nothing more. And this one is a great
example. Nice use of the TexMex accordion
also!

Enjoyed it.

Thanks for that Floyd. Lifting the drums there has filled the verse out nicely! Good call. Cheers.

Amazing Guenter but now that you mention it i can hear the alps in there. Cheers.

Thanks Janice and Bud. That texmex RT certainly fills in the gaps. Cheers.

Thanks Greg. It sort of reminded me of the boozy party songs I'd hear from the next room as a child. Cheers.

Thanks Mario. Delighted to get that toe moving. Cheers.

Richard, I like the melody of this one. Nice easy sparse arrangement. A case where less is more. Good Job. Tom

Hi, Rich !

Is it the Harmonica that
brought me that Creole feel ?
In any case, I like the tune
and I like the lyrics !
I may be making a fool of myself
too, you know !:))(grin) !!

Cheers
Dani

Thanks for checking out both versions Alyn. Have been trying to limit the RT's (which are so easy to apply) to what is really needed. Cheers.

Thanks Dani. Glad you enjoyed the texmex accordian. It's one of my favorites. Enjoy your comments a lot. Cheers.

I really enjoyed your choices here. Your use of just three instruments, the accordion as the sole instrument playing chords . Really draws attention to the lyrics.

And the modulation in the last verse - a very creative touch.

You possess a very creative spirit.

much enjoyed!
